Pro bike: Contador's custom pink Specialized S-Works Tarmac

The Giro d'Italia winner rides in style to the finish in Milan

After three weeks of gruelling but utterly enthralling racing Alberto Contador rolled into Milan on Sunday to claim the 2015 Giro d'Italia. The final maglia rosa was his but so was a pink bike to match his jersey with Specialized providing him with a limited edition version of their Tarmac AC'15.

The bike uses a K-Force Light crankset, Shimano shifters and derailleurs and Specialized's own Roval wheels as per Contador’s standard 2015 build but his Giro winning machine has a colour scheme takeover to match the Italian race.

Pink adorns the top tube and seat stays in their entirety, while there are heavy but classy touches of the colour added to the forks and wheels. For good measure the pedals and bar tape (for Contador and his entire Tinkoff-Saxo team) have also undergone a colour transformation to celebrate the Spaniard's Grand Tour victory.
